On Bank hloiday Monday at the Jazz Festival we'll welcome you to Leeds tent in Cookridge Street. What better place to be! We've really enjoyed our last couple of takeovers of the tent - this will be another afternoon to savour - the sort of eclectic popular mix of jazz styles you've come to expect from us. Free, and this year with a bar, so we won't needs to drink the Radisson dry!
Born out of the snake pit of LS6 house parties, Vipertime draw from the depths of spiritual jazz and post punk to create improvised music for the dance floor, combining the mesmeric forms and harmonies of 70s Addis with the ferocity of 60s Detroit.

Olivia Cuttill Quintet
Originally from East London Olivia Cuttill arrived in Leeds in 2020 to study jazz at Leeds Conservatoire and quickly immersed herself into the vibrant local jazz scene. She released music in 2022 with her fusion jazz band Mangorata (co-led with drummer and musical twin Miles Pillinger), alongside her debut solo album 'Three's A Crowd", a series of duets with some of her favourite musicians she works with in Leeds. Her influences range from Chet Baker, Miles Davis and Chick Correa to Stevie Wonder and Joni Mitchell. These inspirations have sculpted her playing, composing and overall love for music. Since the post-pandemic re-opening, she's been setting the jazz scenes in Leeds, Manchester and London alight with a variety of line-ups. Today, she is joined onstage by her quintet.
